My, how time flies! I’ve now been writing the Blonde Coyote blog for almost two years and after more than 360 posts, I’m in no danger of running out of places to go or things to say. This blog has proved the perfect venue for combining my loves for writing, photography and travel and I have no plans to slow down any time soon!
I’m always scheming and lately, I’ve been thinking about how this blog should evolve in the coming year and I’ve decided it needs to wander more, through both chronological time and geographical space.
Over the past year, my posts have been pretty linear: from buying my Teardrop trailer last March to test driving it through Utah, and along the spine of the Rockies to Wyoming, then West across Nevada to California, up the coast, then up the Cascades to British Columbia, from there to Alaska, back south through the Canadian Rockies, across the Great Plains to spend leaf season on the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, then up to Vermont via Niagara Falls, my 5th Great Lake and the Adirondacks, all the way South through the Florida Everglades to Key West and then across the country again, back to New Mexico. It’s been quite the year!
Now, hang on tight, because we’re veering off course! I’ve been writing this blog for almost two years, but I’ve been living on the road for about seven years and I have a huge reservoir of photos and stories from places that have yet to make an appearance on the Blonde Coyote, either because I visited before June 2011 or I didn’t have the time, energy or inclination to write about them along the way: the world’s only public diamond mine in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, the Center of the Universe aka NYC, winter on the coast of Maine, the Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, I could go on and on!
I’ll still have some timely updates along the way: right now I’m in New Mexico and earlier this week, I went goat herding on horseback so stay tuned for a post on the Horned Locusts! I’ll be in the Land of Enchantment for a couple of weeks, then I’m going to the Grand Canyon, then spring in Utah, then summer in the Rockies and then fall in Ireland and Scotland! It’s gonna be another great year!
Thanks to everybody who follows the Blonde Coyote! My mission in life is to see and experience as much of this Earth as possible and I’m thrilled to have so many enthusiastic and encouraging readers along for the ride. I hope I’ve inspired all of you to get out and explore your own corners of this awesome planet. If you have any regional or location requests, please let me know! I’ve been hiking and road tripping in all 50 states and if you’re looking for some place interesting, I probably have some ideas!
